The communicative encounter between Adele and Simone has also led to another new collection, Rain – made up of vases and small table containers – designed for Adele-C and part of the company’s 2019 catalogue. The series reveals an element of absolute originality within Simone’s production, given by the use of colour, since the artist is generally measured against the crystalline transparency of his chosen material; the exuberant presence of transparent glass spheres along the edge and the upper section of each the piece finally reveals the distinctive element which sets the entire collection apart.
Like raindrops gently brushing the surfaces, transparent spheres of glass ripple ethereally through space before sliding onto each item of the collection. Their presence – fragile, luminous and at the same time exuberant – becomes the element which sets this series apart. The colour lends a completely unique dynamism to these objects: blue, green and yellow spread along the surfaces, enriching the sharp clarity and sparkle of the spheres with infinite nuances, as they transform into small, fluctuating universes in which the transparency of the glass and the glimmer of color emerge in delicate, poetic harmony.
Designed for Adele-C by Simone Crestani.
